Barry Ray Year: 1940 Villages: Pease PottagePease Pottage in the Second World War
Men from all over the mid-Sussex area signed up during the Second World War, and here are a couple of newspaper cuttings referring to just a few of those who served from Pease Pottage.
Frederick Dudley, known as “Joe”, was the son of Charlie Dudley, blacksmith in Tilgate Forest Row, and his second wife, Emma.
Roger Ray, my father, had recently moved with his parents from Freechase, Warninglid, to Hill Cottage, Pease Pottage.
The Large Version shows a cutting to prove that if you place a group of Englishmen anywhere in the world they will still manage to play a game of cricket, even in the theatre of war. Nelson Cook later moved to Truggers, Handcross to bring up his family.
Click on Open Document to view a poor quality photograph of Charlie and Emma Dudley from Pease Pottage. Their son, “Joe”, had three children, Elaine, Barbara, and Joseph, and perhaps Emma is holding one of them.
